Very well described and our dogs love it!!
Dog loves it
Worked well once we got the dog on it.
My dog loves this mat. He is always hot, constantly pushing away his soft bed, preferring to sleep on the hard floor. Since putting this mat down in his crate, he is sleeping less restless. This one is more expensive but works better than a lighter cooling blanket I tried before. I'm buying another one of these for my kitchen so he can nap more comfortably.
Meets all my expectations. Great for my dog, keeps her cool.
I bought this for my husky - he lays on it all day :)
Great investment during the hot summer months! My husky is always panting excessively during the summer and this mat really helps cool him off! My pup is 25kg and the 60x100cm mat is just the right size for him! He's able to stretch out on it comfortably. He does scratch it quite often when he tries to bury and 'hide' his toys/treats in his bed and the mat has not ripped. Overall a really good investment, especially for double coated fur babies! I would definitely buy this again.
The dog self cooling mat arrived quickly and I was pleasantly surprised with the quality. My rottweiler shepherd cross loves it and I was concerned she would puncture it with her nails but it is very durable material and made well. I will be buying another one after the New Year for upstairs area. I would highly recommend this product.
Sometimes dogs like to be on something warm. Sometimes dogs prefer to be on something cool. We have two puppies that are of the cool type and trust me, they're very cool. They absolutely love this mat and they'll sleep on it all night quite happily. Very nicely.made, high quality and a good value for the money. Highly recommended. If your dog is of the cool variety.
My Labrador is a 43 kg puppy, 18 mo old, fit and fighting weight from sturdy hunting stock. But he gets hot. He loves to lie anywhere cool. With summer upon us and a lot of carpet in the house, he didn't have many options to cool off. So I got this cooling gel mat. I chose this over other options because it required no refrigeration and no water. It was the perfect choice! At first he wasn't sure what to do with it, but once his mighty paw realized it was cool it became his number one resting place ! It's in the kitchen/dining room, placed strategically in front of a floor fan where he can plop down belly side facing the fan. It's a life saver and I might just get another for the bedroom. BTW, I like walking on it too.. it's really comfy.
I have a 7mo chocolate lab puppy. She has a hard time cooking herself down. So today, after a walk w/fetch in 30 degree heat I introduced her to it at home. It's been 30 min and she hasn't moved. It must be working. The 60x100 size is good for her now (20kg) and should be good for her as an adult (25kg) The pad folds for easy transport, feels like vinyl so should be easy to clean. But questionable on durability. Comfort (from a cushion perspective) is lackluster at best. I'll have to put it on carpet or something else. In the end, the cooling mechanism works and i'd Buy another one if this one breaks/cracks because she's better off with it!
This is the third cooling pad I've bought and it's also the best one! It's huge, thick and stays cool. As soon as I took it out of the box my little guy made himself comfortable. I like having a couple cooling pads so that when his body heat goes up, he can move over to the next one for some cooling comfort. This one's so big he'll have plenty of room to find relief once one spot gets too warm. My dog is in heart failure so it's really important for him to have a cool place to nap. This pad doesn't smell like chemicals either. I'm glad it's thicker than the others I've purchased, as it offers more comfort. Highly recommend and pet approved!
I've been using this for my 50 kg Brernese Mountain Dog, and he loves it. I'm not sure it works that well just placed on the room temperature floor, since he heats up the mat pretty quickly. But, if you leave it on the freezer for an hour, he loves it too death, won't sleep without it. It doesn't have any gels or anything inside that freeze or warp, so the mat lays flay and he likes it. Stays quite cold for about 2-3 hours in a room temperature area.
Our dog is long haired and has congestive heart failure. As a result, he pants a lot and looks for cool places to lay like the kitchen and bathroom tile. I bought this cooling mat and put it at the end of the couch. I had our dog lay down on it for a few minutes and pet him and gave him some treats so he would know the mat was for him. After I stopped petting him, he got up and for a couple minutes, he would get up, start to sit down and immediately get back up, try to sit down, back up, like He wasn't sure about the cold. After about 5 minutes though he took to the mat no problem and uses it most all the time now. He doesn't pant at all on the mat and best of all, is able to join our family now instead of stuck in the kitchen or bathroom to keep cool. I highly recommend this cooling mat for any dog that gets hot easily. Wish I had known about these earlier for our dog.
Just about the only time I write a product review is if I am 100% satisfied or it is such a piece of junk that I vent my frustration with a supplier in pushing junk onto me and trying to get away with it. This product is in the former category. My aging dog and best friend has joint and bone issues and struggle for comfort and in this very hot summer, has not been the happiest of campers. My sister pointed me to this product, of course I bought it in the hopes that my dog would use it and that it might help. I showed it to her and coaxed her onto it. Honestly, within seconds she was laying down on it and seeking her favourite sleeping position and was asleep in moments with that delightful, contented little smile she has. She sleeps on it every night and it has become her go-to spot [she has many!] for sleeping at night. THANK YOU!
This is a great product. I was a little skeptical of it being cool for any period of time but it does stay cool. Our Berner loves it.
My dog loves this pad. After playing fetch or going for a run around the block my dog loves to cool down fast with this pad. Without this pad, it would take twice as long to cool down. She was always getting up to find a cool spot on the tile and panting a lot longer without it. I would put this in the fridge to keep it cooler after I wipe it down when she is done napping on it and ready for next time. It's really not meant to be left out all day. As for the review talking about taking this to a concert on a HOT day and laying it on HOT concrete and then having your dog that is HOT lay on it, complaining that it doesn't stay cool for long, what did you expect? This thing is great and would definitely buy another if something happened to this one.
My dog loves this product, and I have used it myself as well. It works great up to a certain temperature - once we reached the high 30s(celsius) the mat absorbed the ambient temperature, but worked well for even slightly lower temperatures. My dog is not a scratcher, she just flops over, so this product has worked well. It is relatively durable, but would most likely break under chewing/scratching. It is easy to clean with a sponge and some water.
Ordered this for my 2 chow chows, instant hit! Ordering more for sure.
Great product! I brought it for my 12 year old husky. She loves it. This will help her stay cool this summer.
I have a hot dog. I wasn't sure if he'd use this or not, but I needed something for him during the summertime. Takes about 30mins-1hr before he warms it up and changes spots, but he does get use out of it and it does stay cooler than wood floors.
Absolutely love this. My Bernease Mountain Dog puppy runs very hot and living in the heat does not help the situation. After turning down the air and setting a fan in front of his cage, he was just too hot. All those beds retain heat and he was constantly moving. I bought this to set on top of his bed and this was a game changer - he slept through the night!!! He loves it and cleaning is a breeze. Clean it with soap/water or a wipe.
My dog loves lying on it... especially when she comes inside after a warm day at the park. We keep it on the ceramic floor which keeps it cool even longer for her. Havent had any issues keeping it clean.. mud and dirt wipes off easily with a damp cloth. Very happy with the purchase !!
Our apartment is always on the warm side during the summer months due to our dinky AC. This mat is perfect for our pets to relax and cool down with. Normally they'll try spreading out on our kitchen tile or wood floors, but that can't keep them cool for very long. When I opened this, I had just come home from walking my 30kg dog who was extremely hot and panting. I directed him to the mat and he immediately cooled down. It's great to have anytime your pets need a quick cool down, and can even be folded up and placed in your fridge for extra cooling capacity. The fabric seems durable, but my dog did scuff it pretty quickly with his nails. I don't think he could destroy it though. Overall, if your pet is not heat tolerant, or if your apartment gets warm in the summer months, get this! It's also easy to store so in the cool months it won't get in the way.
After only 2 weeks this mat had 3 little tears in it that were the shape of 90 degree angles. When I told the company they immediately sent out a new mat! The new one is holding up better. I would say the best part about these mats (after the fact that they fold up and go easily into the freezer) is that even if they get a small tear nothing leaks out. It's a safe, nontoxic insulation that doesn't come out or harm my pup! I am so grateful for this company and this product
Item arrived on time and my puppy is very happy with it.
This has been an incredible improvement in quality of life for our overheating senior dog. She is on steroids and 17 years old, so runs very hot. We do use ice packs sometimes as well, but this mat seems to really do the trick! She took to it immediately. (Our other dog, who we didn't think was overheating, loves it too.) We place it over a standard sized rectangular dog bed which supplies some cushion plus seems to reduce any wear and tear on the mat since it is on a soft surface and can't get punctured by nails as easily. We move the mat from one bed to the other depending on what room the dogs are in. No problems yet after daily use for one month. Even if it does degrade over time, it will have been well worth the investment. If I have to buy one every six months, I'll do so - it's that much of a lifesaver.
It's exactly what you're looking for
Our German Shepherd loves this!! She was a little wary at first but now lays on it a decent amount. She was always so hot and pant-y when she got back from even mild walks, and would lay on our bathroom tile for hours to cool down. This mat is moveable and allows her some more cushion so she can lay out in the living room with us while still remaining cool. I've even stood on it for a couple minutes and you can definitely feel your feet cool off. A must for hot doggies!
Excellent mat works better than the other mat - different brand
I have to admit. I felt a bit foolish buying this on a trial for our Hershey. Hershey is near 10 years old. He has hip and knee issues. He also is starting to overheat and pant quite often. He's a good ol' boy who deserves to be spoiled. He loves carpeting over hard wood, he loves dog beds over carpet, he loves the sofas over dog beds and loves king size dog beds over sofas. But I got this to see if it helps him be comfortable with that panting. The package arrived just as it should. On time, boxed appropriately and not damaged. It arrived on a hot 37 degree day here so everything about it was extremely HOT when the delivery guy driving that hot truck on a hot day handed me the package. Shortly after taking it out and laying it on the floor in front of me, I actually noticed a coolness emanating by my feet. Sure enough this pad has magical properties. It was cool to the touch. I thought perhaps I should throw this on the king size dog bed so I can use it at night. Before I could, Hershey noticed the coolness too. To my surprise, he immediately laid down on it. usually takes him some time to warm up to new beds. Not this one. Not only did he take to it right away, I noticed he stopped panting shortly after. There is an memory foam dog bed right next to this. Hershey 99.97% of the time chooses this over the other now. So Haggis and Seamus fight over the memory foam now. He licks the hell out of it. Not sure what that is about. I tried it out, wasn't bacon flavoured. He loves him some bacon. But then he does lick the heck out of our leather sofa, and my legs, and Haggis ear, so his standards aren't great. But since he licks it so much I haven't had to clean it, but I'm sure just a wet towel would suffice. I will say I am fully impressed by this product and that it does maintain staying cool. It rebounds quickly to a chill after he has been on it for extended periods of times. He absolutely does love being on it. It isn't real thick so the gel isn't much of a cushion but there is enough for him. But I know he is loving the coolness, probably helps those old joints too. If you were on the fence, not sure, think it couldn't work, or is it worth it to spoil your dog, the answer to all of that is a resounding H E DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS YES! Do it. Do it now.
Excellent idea for making the dog comfortable
I've tried several cooling beds for my boxers. With each one, I could never get them to use the mat and benefit from the cooling, until this mat. My current boxer was nosing in the box before I could get the mat out and was trying to sit on it before I had it unfolded. Rex uses it every day and is on it right now after a morning walk. So glad I decided to risk it and try this mat. It will be a lifesaver this summer AND bonus of no chance of mold that exists with the mats you fill with water. Thrilled doesn't cover it. This mat is on the thin side so I would place it on something soft for dogs with arthritis and hip issues. I have it on the carpet and Rex, who has both, is doing fine with it. So you know, it's light in weight and very easy to wipe off. It will shift a bit on the carpet so be aware.
Bought for Ruby, 13yr old Westie. She won't lie down on a spot she did not choose, so we put the pad on our bed and there was no other spot on the bed to lie down, except the cool pad. When she got that the pad cooled her off, it became 'the spot'. It is cooling. It is easy to clean. It is heavy, so it does not slide around. The surface is not like a blanket, but I think this makes the cooling more effective. Ruby likes to 'scump' her blankets and likes a blanket feel, but adjusted and liked being cool more. My husband has MS and the heat is a serious problem. I put the pad over his side of the bed one afternoon when outside was too hot and inside not much better. It helped him. Glad we bought one for a bigger dog. Ruby can stretch out and change position. I'm really glad we bought this. Thank you. Great idea.
Well, my big boy loves it. He likes to sleep on the bed at night but he overheats quickly. He will start panting and will get up and goes and flops down on the cooling mat and lets out a big sigh. It's big! 60x100. My boy is a healthy 28kg. All of him fits on it plus room. Fully folded out, it was a little bit thinner than some of the other brands I have gotten in the past. That being said, it is separated into larger panels. I could fold it in 1/2 but it would just be for me. The dog likes it. It cools him off nicely. I'm pleased so far. Oh! and it's easy to wipe any slobber off
Does exactly what it advertise. My husky loves it! And I am thankful. He's a bigger husky so I purchased the long mat. Barely fits him, but it fits all the essential body parts that needs to be cool. He uses the cooling pad at night during the heat. It provides him with some cushioning on the carpet floors when he doesn't want to sleep on his bed. He has tried scratching at the mat and there has been no tears. However, he bit into the mat and there is now a puncture. Still giving it a 4 star for durability because he continues to scratch at the mat and it has not ripped one bit. (FYI, he does this when he's bored or did not have much exercise that day. So I'm pretty sure other buyers will have no issues with durability.)
I like everything about the cooling mats. I have used it all summer, and can see only positive effects it has on keeping my dog comfortable in the heat. Actually, because of her advanced age and the ensuing aches and pains, and difficulty standing, I have purchased three to spread around the house. I heartedly recommend these for your pet.
The best cooling mat I have purchased yet. I have huskies and they absolutely love it.
I've had other cooling pads before and the other ones became hard and I had to throw them out. I've had this one for a week so I can't speak about how the product stands up over time but I will say my dog loves it. She has laid on it ever since I got it. I live in the desert and she was constantly panting. She hasn't had any issues since we got the cooling pad. I got a medium for my medium sized dog and it she has plenty of room on it.
We have a 9 week old Bernese Mountain dog and he uses the mat all the time as his bed. Stretches out on his belly to stay cool. Thumbs up on this product
I really really loved this mat!! I got this for my dog, because I dont have AC and it gets really hot. She liked it as well. She would lay on it for hours. It was easy to wipe down and keep clean from dirty paws. Sadly, my dog is a chewer. She chewed 2 spots so I had to throw it away. I will be purchasing this again next summer when she is a bit older. And I'll also buy the cover that is sold as well. It was a great size for my dog. She is about 14kg and could lay out entirely in it. Belly or side. I laid on it sometimes as well. It's not an ocean cube, but it was surprisingly cool!! Exactly as described.
My golden retriever fits on this mat perfectly. We are in another heat wave and i purchased this to make sure she was cooled after being outside. Humidity has been horrible and short walks are all we can do safely. Once we return home she can recover quicker while on it. This is our 2nd cooling mat.
Gabe steps out in his fancy black fur coat for all occasions regardless of weather. He gets quite hot and so I've bought him a bunch of cooking mats. It's only been a week or so but he seems to love this one. It's in my office and even in the evenings after 'work from home' is over he'll still go back to the office and lay on it, neglecting his other cooling mats/blankets. Good price too! And it will be much much easier to wipe clean than all of the others we have because it isn't made of fabric.
Bought this for an elderly dog who easily overheats. Wasn't sure she'd figure it out but after a week she started making a beeline for it. Ended up buying a second one so that when the pad eventually warms, she can move to a second one. The instructions say you can put it in the fridge (not freezer!) to help cool it. We've found that putting it near a floor air conditioning vent works just as well. The pad has not been torn up by her nails at all. The only minor negative is that the fabric surface doesn't wipe clean like new after awhile. But whatever, this has made a senior dog so much more comfortable!
My flat coat retriever was getting calloused elbows from lying on the tile to stay cool. He loves the cold even in the winter. We bought him two of these. One very large and one that fits his crate. He now sleeps in his crate(he wasn't a fan before) and instead of always being at our feet in the kitchen, he stays on the larger cooling mat. He just loves it. Best dog purchase I've made to date.
Worth every penny!! I'm so glad I went ahead with the purchase! We have a fair thick fur Golden Retriever puppy and he was always waking me up to go sit outside several times a night. Kept it about 18 in house. Well since getting this mat he doesnt wake up! I can barely get him up in morning. He loves it! He doesnt really chew things up so fingers crossed that will not be an issue. Ordered the large one and it was perfect for his kennel. I lay it on his soft bed. Worth every penny!!
I was a bit skeptical about this product because I have wood floors so I wasn't sure if she'd actually use it. My dog has pretty thick fur, and because of the heat we have to turn off our a/c from 3pm to 6pm. It can get pretty hot in our home, and anything that can help her be a bit more comfortable I'll take. She chose this mat over the floor every single time. I'm glad I bought this for her. As for durability she has zoomed around, jumped onto it, dug at it, and it doesn't have any damage. Comfort wise, it isn't much softer than the floor, but it is cooler. I have a cot for her that's off the ground that I'll set it on too, if you have an older dog you could put it over their bed and it will still have the cooling effect. It's a great buy for any dog that gets hot.
Seems to work well for my Malamute. The real test will be this summer
I don't know how this thing works, but my 2 dogs (and oddly enough 1 of my cats) fight over this mat. It really does stay cool. Okay, full disclosure, my wife though I was crazy for doing it, but I was laying on it just to see what made it appear to feel cooler. Obviously it couldn't actually be cooler, but how did it work? After laying on it, with my 40 kg 9 year old dog (with another dog eyeing me the whole time waiting for me to get up), I can honestly say that I believe the same people who make the copper fit knee brace, (that somehow magically works) and those people who make those ridiculous magnetic bracelets, (that I am convinced does nothing, but somehow releaves pain) have made this thing. It is magical. It stays cold for a few hours and cools quickly. I am ordering more soon.
My dog loves her cooling mat AND the cats do too! Really works to keep them cool in hot weather! I do recommend this product :)
We have had this for a few months now and it's still going strong. We have an 11 year old 45 kg German Shepherd who gets very hot especially at night, he was constantly moving from his bed to the hardwood to try and get cool and at his age the hard floor is hard on his joints. We placed this on his orthopedic bed and it fits his bed perfectly, now he rarely gets out of his bed and when he comes in from outside it's the first place he goes.
Like many loving pet owners I scoured through the various options of cooling mats and struggled to decide on the right one. I'm very happy that we purchased this one, it's as described and our 8 month old golden LOVES it. It took a few weeks before he understood what it was for but now it's his go-to. Very compact and easy to fold/transport if needed. It does scratch easily but so far no tears or issues. Always cool to touch. We have a long Phoenix summer ahead of us and this is already helping! Definitely recommend.
These style of cooling mats are now part of my dog performance tack box. Even in high heat and humid days my dogs are comfortable. Easy to use, no refrigeration or water needs. Looked at the soft gel filled and worried about puncture and ingestion issues. I'd buy again if need another.
This is a sturdy well-made product. It just did not suit my purpose. My dog loves to stay outside and for the last month as the weather began heating up she just would not come inside the house. So I ordered the cooling pad thinking it would at least help her stay cool. Last Friday the temperature was 37 degrees and my dog wanted to come inside. It was just too hot to have the cooling pad outdoors so I had to return it.
Works well my dog and cat love it and it keeps them cool
The dog is still iffy on it, but he has used it a few times for naps. It does seem to cool to the touch when you stand on it, and it is incredibly easy to clean and wipe the hair off. No weird factory smells or damage, ready to use right out of the box.
We have a 4 month old bernese mountain dog pup who had begun sleeping in the master bath once he learned the tile floor was cooler overnight than his kennel, which is in our room and where we prefer him to sleep. It had gotten to the point where we had to close the bath if we wanted him to spend time with us, and then he would then paw sadly at the door. We got this cooling pad to put in his kennel and now it is his favourite spot upstairs again. We can leave the bathroom door open and he chooses the cooling pad every time. I think that is sign enough to say it is effective and liked by the dog. It is worth noting that when we tried putting it on the floor not in his kennel he saw it as a pee pad, but he is still a pup so who can blame him, thankfully it was very easy to clean after that accident. UPDATE: It has been four months, Theodore is now 8 months and 40+ kg (and still growing!) and this mat is still his favorite place to sleep. he has chewed off the fabric at the edges, but the gel didn't leek and it still keeps him cool nicely.
We got this as our dog has never dealt well with the heat, despite being a kelpie, and now she is old we thought we'd look into what was available. Once it arrived, she was not certain about it at first, but a couple of weeks in and for the rest of summer she would sleep on it everytime, day or night. The funny thing is, summer came and went, we are in the depths of winter and even on cold nights, she still seems to like it! We have carpet everywhere, there is even actual sheep skins if she wants (and sometimes she does) but often enough she still chooses the cooling mat! That's probabaly all I need to say really.
not sure how but it does a very good job at staying cool. my dog absolutely loves it in the night time
